Spectrum of Third Sound Cavity Modes on Superfluid 3He Films

  • A. Vorontsov

We report theoretical calculations of the spectrum of third sound modes for a cylindrically symmetric film of superfluid 3He, and compare these results with experimental data for the mode frequencies and amplitude spectrum of surface waves of superfluid 3He films.
